Council undertakes several community safety and crime prevention activities.  These activities aim to make the Strathfield Municipality safer by reducing the causes of harm to residents and the public such as accidents.  They also include working with the NSW Police on projects and programs that address opportunities for crime through community education, safety audits of crime hotspots, community policing, and the promotion of personal and home safety.

Strathfield Council has a Community Safety and Crime Prevention Plan. Through this plan Council outlines several strategies to promote community safety and crime prevention in the next four years.
